Using Projects

Projects provide a convenient means for managing related groups of documents. The projects view is the first of the three tabs on the left-hand panel in the editor and on installation will contain a number of sample projects for SOAP, WSDL, XML Signatures, etc.

Projects Overview

To create a new project choose Project->New Project and enter the project name. To add a directory and its contents to a project, select Project->Add Directory or alteratively, right-click on the project name in the Project view and select Add Directory in the popup. To only add the directory contents without the top-level directory itself, choose Project->Add Directory Contents.

Virtual folders can be added to a project by selecting Project->Add Folder... or right-click and choose Add Folder from the popup. Virtual folders are handy for grouping associated files from various locations on disk. Individual files can be added to Projects or Folders by selecting Project->Add file or right-clicking in the Project view and choosing Add File from the popup. To expand a project or folder, double-click the icon or name in the project view.

Remote files can similarly be added to Projects or Folders by selecting the appropriate Project or Folder and then selecting Project->Add Remote (or alternatively right-clicking and choosing Add Remote from the popup)

A file can be removed from a Project or Folder by clicking on the file name in the Project view and then choosing Project->Remove File (or alternatively, right-clicking and choosing Remove File from the popup). Note: the file will not be deleted from disk.

A folder can be removed from a Project or parent Folder by clicking on the folder name in the Project view and then choosing Project->Remove Folder (or alternatively, right-clicking and choosing Remove Folder from the popup). Note: the directory will not be deleted from disk.

To delete a project, click on the project name and then either select Project->Delete Project or right-click and choose Delete Project.

A project can be imported into the editor and can automatically generate folders, files, templates, etc in the editor. Select Project->Import Project, choose the file projects/XPath/XPath.xngr and press OK. As this project already exists in the Editor, you will be asked if you want to override the existing project. By selecting yes, you will import the project along with any folders, files, templates, etc that have been set up in the project file. To create your own project files for import, look at any of the example project files - they typically end in .xngr
